Petition to The Hon. Jenny Mikakos MLC,

What justice is there for abused children?

CHILDREN ARE BEING MURDERED, RAPED, ABUSED, TORTURED, BEATEN & NEGLECTED EVERY SINGLE DAY.. WHAT IS BEING DONE FOR THOSE WHO SURVIVE? NOTHING The law is not on their side that's for sure. When a baby can be brutally savaged, when a child is raped and tortured, when any child at any age is mistreated what happens? Let me tell you. The child gets a life sentence, that's if they are not killed, they never grow up and become the person they should have been. Some are so broken that they are unable to live comfortably in a society that let them down ... for them there is never any justice. Some turn to drugs, crime, prostitution or alcohol... some take their life, some blame themselves... one thing they all have in common is that they NEVER ASKED TO BE ABUSED.  WHAT HAPPENS TO THE PERP?   In all too many cases not enough. Time after time we hear about the ludicrously lenient sentences given to these monsters. Just in the past few months there have been questionable sentences given out. 9 months for murgering a baby, 6 months for raping a 6 year old and on and on it goes.They do their time and are released still alive and able to continue living their lives... some return to being monsters. We need to unite to ensure that these monsters are given jail terms more befitting of their crimes. We need TOUGHER SENTENCES FOR CHILD ABUSERS NOW... Please sign and share this petition... WE WANT REAL JUSTICE  THE PETITION WE THE UNDERSIGNED HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF DISGUSTINGLY LENIENT SENTENCES given to CHILD ABUSERS. WE DEMAND HARSHER JAIL TERMS for anyone FOUND GUILTY OF CHILD ABUSE & NEGLECT. We include child abusers, child rapists, child molesters, child murderers, paedophiles and child groomers .... JAIL TERMS SHOULD REFLECT THE SEVERITY OF THEIR CRIMES. THEY DON'T. THEY SHOULD.  PETITION LINK..

Petition to Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk

Free after 8 months for sex abuse of 12 year old girl - review disgusting sentences

I’ll never forget the moment she told me. My innocent 12 year old girl was sexually abused by the son of my ex-partner. This monster was convicted, but given immediate bail and only a disgusting 8 month sentence for the abuse. The trauma, abuse we suffered -- yet the QLD justice system thinks 'sexual abuse of a minor' deserves a perpetrator walking out of jail free 'time served'. We were forced to move to Perth to escape him - left completely abandoned by Queensland’s justice system. It’s destroyed our family. I am fed up of reading the headlines about child abuse in Queensland. In recent news, a repeat offender is now free after 6 months for abuse of an 8 year old. Our state’s weak, pathetic child abuse sentences are letting child sex offenders off the hook. Girls like my daughter are left forever suffering indescribable injustice. I always thought the law was there to protect vulnerable kids. It’s traumatising to find out that the justice system is failing sexually abused kids just because your own child is a victim. There’s an election coming up soon - this is our moment to finally make politicians listen to us. Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk must stop letting child sex offenders off with weak sentences - urgently review the prosecution of Queensland’s child sex abuse cases.

Don't let me die without justice for my daughter's rape and suicide by a Catholic priest

My name is Eileen Piper. I’m a 92 yr old widow battling the Catholic Church for justice after the horrific rape and sexual abuse of my teenage daughter by a priest. They’ve been brutal and heartless. They’re hoping I’ll die so that they don’t have to deal with me anymore or pay me proper compensation for the heinous sexual abuse to Stephanie. I’ve been fighting them for 23 years – all I want is to see justice, and I refuse to give up. Before Stephanie committed suicide, the priest, Gerard Mulvale, was charged by the Police for 6 horrendous sex offences in 1970s. The worst was when he locked her in the boot of his car, drove her down a dirt road and brutally raped her. She described it as “being torn apart internally”. That image still haunts me. Back then, I trusted this Pallottine Priest to care for her. Instead, he told Stephanie she was born out of sin, because she had been adopted and that she ‘had to make up for it’. Just yesterday, the Royal Commission revealed that almost 14% of priests from the Pallottines were alleged perpetrators and that 7% of all Australian Catholic Priests are alleged child sex abusers, many of them still serving vulnerable communities. The culture of abuse has to stop. Apologies must be made. Proper compensation must be paid. Lives need to be rebuilt. My daughter, Stephanie, was told by the church that they did not believe her allegations, and they continue to uphold this position today. Stephanie received threats from the Pallottines not go to the police.  Please, the Pallottines and the Archdiocese of Melbourne, apologise and compensate properly for my Stephanie’s horrific abuse and subsequent suicide. I’m done waiting. I need to have justice before I die. Please help by signing and sharing my petition.
